ABSTRACT

This study evaluated the impact of administrative planning processes on teaching and learning outcomes in selected faculties at the University of Ilorin. The study employed a descriptive survey methodology. The total population of the study was 690 made up of 187 Deans, 315 Quality Assurance rs, and 188 Department of Policy Implementation Officials.

Using a simple random sampling method, 67 Deans, 113 QAOs, and 68 DPI officials were selected for the study. The instrument for data collection was a forty-item self-structured questionnaire titled “Influence of Administrative planning processes on Teaching and Learning Outcomes Questionnaire” (IMESTLQ) with a Likert rating scale of Strongly Agreed (SA), Agreed (A), Undecided (U), Disagreed (D), and Strongly Disagreed (SD) (SD).

The Department’s supervisors confirmed the instrument, and the final draft was pilot-tested. The result of 0.84 indicated its reliability. The mean scores, percentages, and standard deviation were utilized to answer the study questions, while one-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) at a significance level of 0.05 was employed to assess the hypotheses.

The findings resulted in the retention of all hypotheses. The study indicated that administrative planning processes by University of Ilorin deans, QAOs, and DPI officials have a significant impact on teaching and learning results in selected faculties.

This is the result of routine quality assurance procedures. include that Quality Assurance rs, the Department of Policy Implementation, and Deans of Schools strengthen their efforts on the continual evaluation of the education system.

In addition, ContinuousAssessment of school records by quality assurance officers, the DPI, and deans would improve the teaching and learning results at the University of Ilorin. As a result, these actions should be emphasized during school supervision, inspection, and monitoring.

The Quality Assurance r, DPI, and Deans should prioritize the evaluation of lesson plans and notes. Continuous assessment records should play a major role in the instructional supervision process of Quality Assurance rs, the Department of Public Instruction, and school deans. For the improvement of the Nigerian educational system, suggestions for further research were made.

 

FIRST PART

INTRODUCTION

1.1 OF THE STUDY
Education is a crucial instrument for national development that can only be obtained through the educational system. It generates the human capital that leverages all other production components to produce the necessary output for nation building.

Teaching and learning outcomes is a process that can only be efficient with an efficient framework for checks and balances, such as efficient administrative planning processes. Monitoring involves the intermittent and attentive of something over a period of time in order to observe its development and make any required adjustments.

Evaluation, on the other hand, involves doing a critical analysis of a planned program in order to determine the degree of achievement of predetermined goals and objectives. It is a tool for providing students, instructors, and policymakers with feedback.

Through evaluation, program deficiencies are identified in order to devise corrective measures for improvement. Therefore, the administrative planning processes are a true instrument for enhancing the educational system.

In this manner, school supervisors and inspectors, also known as quality assurance officers, ensure that room instruction is enhanced by making lecturers more cognizant of their responsibilities. Therefore, increasing their skills and making them more accountable.

The primary purpose of monitoring and supervision is to assure the daily application of curriculum in our schools. The administrative planning process employs a variety of strategies in order to accomplish its goals, including: regular evaluation of the school system through quality assurance inspection, school records assessment, ensuring that lesson notes and plans are reviewed prior to lesson delivery, use of continuous assessment for students to determine their level of performance, and annual performance evaluation of lecturers as a benchmark for promotion.

The administrative planning processes and the DPI section of the FCDA Education Secretariat serve the same purpose as the previous inspectorate division. Despite efforts to resolve inconsistencies in the quality of teaching and learning outcomes in Ilorin schools through the development of the administrative planning processes unit, there appeared to be much room for improvement. Students’ internal and external examination results are not particularly spectacular, and professors’ output is declining.

This necessitates attempting to rectify the situation before it ly spirals out of control. This is the impetus for this study. Thus, the study titled “Influence of administrative planning processes on teaching and learning outcomes at the University of Ilorin in Ilorin” is an attempt to investigate precisely how administrative planning processes affect teaching and learning outcomes at the University of Ilorin in Ilorin. This is done in an effort to provide information that would facilitate effective teaching and learning outcomes in selected faculties at the University of Ilorin.

1.2 DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM
Over the years, Nigeria has seen a series of depressing images emanating from its educational system, which has caused it pain and anguish. The educational performance of students has been declining. From the second half of the 1950s to the late 1970s, Nigeria’s educational development reached its zenith. The standard of education was relatively high at all levels of the country’s educational system. However, this no longer holds true.

The changes appear to have begun very gradually in the 1970s, accelerated in the 1980s, and have now reached an alarming level. The number of candidates registering for WAEC/SSCE has increased geometrically, while the number of those who pass with 5 credits or more, including Mathematics and English language, has steadily declined.

Central Bank of Nigeria (1995) listed the causes of this marked decline in educational performance as shortage of qualified lecturers, inadequate financial and infrastructural facilities, deteriorating moral values in the society, and school misplaced priority due to inadequate administrative planning processes of the system.

In Ilorin, numerous institutions are responsible for the administrative planning of the educational system. These include officers from the Department of Policy Implementation (DPI), the Quality Assurance Unit, and faculty deans. A cross-examination of these educational quality controls reveals that they all share the same goals: to inspect schools and their records, such as lesson notes and curriculum content, in order to ensure the quality of teaching and learning and to improve student achievement in our schools.

How have the efforts of these monitoring officers affected the teaching/learning performance of lecturers in Ilorin? Are the various school records such as lesson notes, diaries, and assessment of the curriculum effectively monitored and maintained?

This situation has caused many Nigerians, especially stakeholders, to be concerned about the condition of the education system. In light of this, the researcher undertook this investigation into the impact of administrative planning processes on teaching and learning outcomes in selected faculties of the University of Ilorin. This will allow those involved in the educational delivery services to determine the adequacy of inspectors, school records, lesson notes/plans, continuous assessment, and their impact on teaching and learning outcomes.
